Warning:these are global mods who effect only the specific shapes they refer to, they are not hacks:
- they would not unknowingly included in your uploaded lots, if this happen use the Clean Installer to remove them.
- they would not copy in your windows clone with Simpe, in any case is strongly suggested to remove them or to uncheck the Downloads folder in the File Table.

Why these MODs?
I've never understood the excessively uneven heights and ugly overlaps with counters that Maxis has set for certain windows
So, I've created these Global Mod that not only ensures an even height for several windows, but also makes them line-up correctly with kitchen counters and stoves: no more ugly overlaps occur

- ML_OpenMe_GLOBAL-MOD.package
This mod required NL

If you don't have NL you don't need it.
If you are interested to allow the light indoor for the OpenME 2Tile that it doesn't, you can find my Global Fix here
